The Scale of The Universe

As the name suggests, this is a chart that compares the scale of objects in the universe, from simple cells to humans, moons and galaxies.
 The zoom allows you to examine just how big things are in comparison to another, and the reality is quite surprising
It also gives you a short bit of information on each object, such as which known star is the brightest
(Sirius A), the average temperature on Venus (450°C) and the largest known planet (TrES-4).
